warriors up by five. steph curry give me a three. and the warriors would have an eight point lead but it evaporated. only four field goals in the fourth period. david lee, coming off the bench giving quality minutes. celtics by one. four minutes left they couldn't stop isaih thomas. buries the three to seemingly put it out of reach. there's a minute 17 to go in the game. the celtics lead 101-100 so the streak may be kaput. all right. baseball, giants showed off its early christmas gift today. new pitcher jeff samardzija he wants the giants, the giants wanted him although samardzija couldn't show his hands. >> you have to play it cool in free agency. it's kinds of like being in high school and trying to find a homecoming date. you don't want to be left out there in the cold. so try to act like, eh, you know, i might go to san fran, i might think about it. but really in the back of my head i knew that's where i
wanted ton. and i -- >> all right. the 6'5" right-hander met the bay area media for the first time since he signed the deal last saturday. a one-time oakland a, an all- star in 2014. but he did pitch a forgettable 2015 with the white sox. but his ability to go deep in games and throw in the mid-90s got him here. i chatted him up in the giants clubhouse. >> take us through you puttingthen jersey looking down and just saying yourself, man, i'm a giant now. >> when you're at home and you're a fan of the game and you know organizations, you know how they work and their histories and, um, you're sitting by your phone waiting to see what happens. when the giants calls it kind of justifies everything you have been doing just by the fact that if an organization like that is going to be interested in you, then you're doing something write you. >> talked to buster posey.
did you have that moment where you said, man, i -- here's a first ballot surefire hall of fame catcher i'm going to be throwing. this guy has caught no-hitters. he has caught world series -- he is a world series champion. you almost have to kind of pinch yourself. >> i was really excited but the real thing that excited me are these guys where they're at with everything they have accomplished so far to be so humble and hungry caught me off guard. you expect guys to be like, oh, yeah, come on, join the crew. we'll have some fun. but it was almost like i was talking to these guys like they haven't won anything yet. and to me, that was the tipping point. >> going to be in the running with the guy that's across the locker room over there brandon crawford as to who wears the better hair product. >> i'm not a big product guy. you know? i wash it with what's ever in the bathroom. you know? whatever the wife uses or -- i don't know. >> you just let it flow. >> i just hate haircuts. i hate sitting down. i hate hearing the snip. it gives me the shakes right
now thinkin about it. >> congratulations, see you in arizona. >> can't wait. got to look at this. last night fourth ranked iowa state came back from 20 in a second half to defeat in state rival iowa by one. an emotional win like that brought fans to the floor. somewhere in that swarm was randy peterson a columnist for the des moines register. peterson broke his leg when fans ran out on the court and he is scheduled to undergo surgery and will be okay. last check, looks like one second left. 103-103. could go to overtime. >> yeah. >> whoo! >> like coach said, what's the worst they can do? 23-1. >> that wouldn't be too bad. >> the latest coming up. >> join us for nightbeat at 10:00 on cw 44/cable 12. see you at 11:00. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
